Exercise: Check. Eating: Che.. ah crap

Sunday, April 22, 2012

Exercise has been going great. I've jogged 2-3 miles every other day for a week and a half, and walked at least 30 minutes the off days. I start each day great on the food front, with a healthy breakfast and lunch, healthy snacks and plans for a healthy dinner. Unfortunately those plans get derailed by either eating out, or giving in to late night snacking (ok, gorging emoticon). On the one hand I am happy that I am active again and, knock on wood, so far my foot problems have stayed away after many 11-12 min/mile jogs. But I've GOT to get a handle on my eating. As usual I did great for about three months, then things went to crap again. 15 of the 45lbs I re-lost are back.

Today followed the typical pattern of late. I was on-plan for breakfast with healthy cereal with raisins. Lunch was packed for a trip to the Zoo (which turned into a trip to the Science Center when the forecasters got it ALL wrong). Roast chicken dinner went in the oven, and then I went to get groceries.. and pigged out while I was out. It's like I can't pass any of my favorite restaurants without stopping these days! Chicken went in the fridge for tomorrow. I did make myself get on the treadmill and do a 35 minute brisk walk.

Oh well, the struggle goes on. Not giving up!

    Yeah I wanna know where that rain came from dang it! Well at least the Science Center is so close to the Zoo so you still had an option for fun! You'll get the eating back on track I'm sure!
